The LPC would like to remind contractors that the government has announced an increase of 20 pence to the NHS prescription charge to £8.40 per prescription item. This change will come into effect from the 1st April 2016.
The cost of prescription prepayment certificates (PPC) has remained the same with the price of a three month PPC at £29.10 and a 12-month PPC at £104. PPCs offer savings for those needing four or more items in three months or more than 13 items in one year.
